About The Event
Neuroprotection in Preterm Infants
The prevention of preterm birth represents one of the most challenging issues in the field of obstetrics . Preterm infants born before the 30th week of pregnancy are especially at risk of prenatal mortality and morbidity .Damage to the immature brain is one of the central concerns. Administering of magnesium sulphate intravenously to women at imminent risk of a preterm birth leads to a significant reduction in the likelihood of the infant developing cerebral palsy and motor skill dysfunction. It has also been demonstrated that delayed clamping of the umbilical cord after birth reduces the rate of brain hemorrhage among preterm infants by up to 50%. In addition, mesenchymal stem cells seem to have significant neuroprotective potential in animal experiments, as they increase the rate of regeneration of the damaged cerebral area..
TOPICS TO BE COVERED:
1. Identifying preterm babies at risk of brain injury
2. Analysing exciting Measures of neuroprotection
3. Discovering future neuroprotection modalities
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This activity is designated for all pediatricians, doctors, and nurses working in all healthcare facilities and dealing with child care.
